6:11 pm
wrong. 911 calls started coming in around 11 sunday morning. this video from citizen app shows flames coming from the twin parks, northwest apartment building and the fordham heights section of the bronx. the f d. n y says the blaze was started by a malfunctioning electric space heater being used to heat a bedroom duplex that span the 2nd and 3rd floors. officials say 17 people lost their lives. mine adults and eight children one as young as four years old and the fire. was contained to the hallway just outside this two story apartment, but the smoke traveled throughout the building and the smoke is what caused the jets and the serious injuries. officials say the smoke traveled so quickly because the door to the unit where it began was left open and likely, according to mayor adams when the occupants were trying to get out, it is our obligation to reinforce the concept of closed the door closed the door. but what we don't want to do is just add more trauma on the family that
6:12 pm
was simply trying to escape very dangerous in a very frightening experience, the f d. n y says the door to the apartment and one on the 15th floor did not automatically closed as they are designed to do and finding out why is now the key focus of the investigation. the building smoke detectors were working, though some residents say those detectors routinely went off. at least 44 people were injured, and officials say at least 15 remain in critical condition. we will be working with the developers and those on the ground to make sure that everyone has adequate housing as soon as possible if they cannot come back to the building. and that was antoine louis reporting for us fire. investigators say the space heater that started the fire had been running for quote prolonged period before the fire began, would cause it to malfunction, though, remains under investigation. if you're pulling out your space heater, not here are some safety recommendations to remind you of choose a heater with thermostat or overheat protection. place

6:14 pm
coming weeks to help ease or water restrictions. ktvu tom baker tells us there is some good news tonight for two northern california counties. the two major atmospheric rivers and some other healthy rains that came to the bay area region since october, has worked wonders for water supplies. so the marin municipal water district and the santa cruz water company are both seriously considering easing their water restrictions. in santa cruz block loman reservoir is currently at 81% of capacity and just 10 ft. short of where the spillway would actually release water downstream into the san lorenzo river. if loch lomond is full, and we're good for at least that part that next year if it's not full as but you know pretty full, then you know, we take a little bit more up, kasha, please cautiously optimistic, kind of point of view, given that there's at least 6 to 8 weeks of peak rainy season left the odds are santa cruz will be full and restrictions will be gone. it's on or off. we're not going to
6:15 pm
phase them in or face them out. but shana crews would continue to ask its customers to continue conserving. which must already do and will like santa cruz marines. watershed has been thoroughly soaked, allowing for more run off to get into the reservoirs in the last nine days. nicasio reservoir, for example, has gone up two ft if all of that water were in a one square acre water tank, it would have to be a tank almost 1700 ft. tall, twice as high as san francisco's transamerica pyramid in marin in the mount tamil pious, watershed lake lagunitas reservoir has received more than 43 inches of rain. that's more than four times last year's rain and almost twice its historical rainfalls. it's seven reservoirs are 95% of capacity compared to 57% this time last year, as well as above its 77% historical average on this date. fundamentally this year where things are looking kind of good . historically san francisco's five biggest reservoirs have
6:16 pm
averaged to be about 61% full on this date. in reality right now , the average only 36% which means for most to california, the drought is still very much on as well as statewide restrictions. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. almost all of california remains in moderate or severe drought with many counties in the middle of the state in extreme drought, the latest rainstorms have helped compared with last drought with the last drought report. in fact , some areas in california already received more rain in the past three months, then they had in the prior 12 months. yes, julie. we had a heck of an early season rain throughout the bay area again. we're still over well over 100% of average some areas over 150 over 160% of rainfall average for this time of year. we are heading into a dry pattern. you can feel that we've been talking about it since last week. on and it's a
6:17 pm
good thing. we got all that rain. i mean, now we can withstand this dry spell that we're going to have probably the next 5 to 6 to seven. maybe even a little longer than that. i've seen some indications that might be 10 days before we see some rain, but then other things could change. in the meantime, where's the rain going? oh, it's out there, but look where it's going. long range model just sends everything north. look at that ridge of high pressure blowing into seattle up into british columbia, up in the vancouver island and olympic peninsula, and it continues into southern alaska. so that's all the way through started this whole week that that pacific northwest is getting hammered and we are on the south end. so what that means for us in generally is just going to be looking at mild temperatures, which we're seeing low sixties mid sixties. i think valley fog is sort of the weather thing we got. oh, and big surf. the swells really, really come up. it's not there yet, but by tomorrow it's going to be pretty big and it's going to stay big for maybe three or four days and the point to its words. dangerous, dangerous, big. film.
6:18 pm
yeah i think mavericks will break. the conditions are right, so you'll probably see some pictures from there. but if you are going to the beach is just be careful. and i know a lot of people are i happen to be out there a little bit, and i see a lot of people but more people than we ever used to see on a warm day when it's 64 63 you feel like i go braiding, but i'd be super careful these next few days. certainly, as we go into tuesday, wednesday and thursday. so with that said, it's not going to rain anytime soon. enjoy what we got. when i get back. we'll look at the forecast highs and specifics for your neighborhood. the el cerrito police department is mourning the death of one of its own. el cerrito officer, jared bernstein was killed yesterday morning, you know, multi vehicle car crash on interstate 80 in san pablo. it was his 26th birthday. bernstein was from hercules. the police department says he was a model officer, humbling personality and tenacious in police work. the crash happened on interstate 80 west of san pablo. road according to chp, the driver of a transit van lost
